Great example, it looks unissued.
I found an unissued one a while back.
US M3 Air Crew Helmet - Unissued
and congrats! Even your M3 is fantastic.
Superb condition very nice. I owned all 3 versions of the flak helmet from ww2 when I was younger but sold them off, which I now totally regret.

A very nice example for your collection.
A great example Roberto, I see a few of these around as I live in Norfolk (UK), the wartime "home" of the US 8th Air Force! Unlike your example however, most sadly have the felt ear pads missing. Well done, Leon.

it's true! in your area there was a large concentration of USAAF bombers bases, I think I remember in detail, that in those parts were operational many BG equipped with B24 bombers.
Excellent pick up Roberto. A beautiful M3 in fantastic condition.
Something I am wanting to add to my B17 gunners display!!!!!
